Aim of the game

Twister, one of the most powerful demons of Hell, is trying to corrupt mankind to the point of destruction. You've been chosen to save mankind from her; to do this, you have to travel through your own subconscious in order to gather various sacred symbols that will enable you to vanquish Twister and her underlings.

Game play

The game is divided into a number of sub-games. The first involves jumping across a series of platforms as they approach and collecting the objects that appear on many of them. Twister's minions will try to hinder you, but you can shoot them down using psychic weapons which you can gain by collecting four special suits of cards that appear while you're fighting. When a demon is shot, it drops an object, many of which are useful (the triangle of darts gives extra firepower). Two however cause either a loss of energy or the loss of the loss of the last object to have been picked up. The next section has you travelling down a pseudo-3D gridwork corridor inhabited by the demons. Here you must collect the characters making up the Word of Ultimate Power. The next corridor is walled but is much the same except thhat signs of the Zodiac must be collected. If you succeed a jet pack propels you towards a confrontation with Twister herself, who looks unnaturally like a flower in a plant pot. Demons must be eliminated before the Triangle of Truth materialises; if this is touched in time, the warhead of the psychic bolt displayed at the bottom of the screen begins to flash. A direct hit down Twister's throat is necessary to kill her, and you only have one shot, so timing is critical!


"Enjoyable if undemanding".

A simple enough shoot-em-up. (It was originally going to be subtitled "Mother of the Harlots" before someone explained to the author what a harlot was...)
